Be the first to review this product

After the constraints of the World War Two, the British embraced modern design like never before. From spindly-legged furniture to fabrics based on atomic design, quirkily patterned pottery to abstract graphics, they wanted everything around them to reflect the bright new post-war world. This book traces the development of modern design in the 1950s, from its first genteel beginnings at the Festival of Britain to the shops brimming with slick products at the end of the decade. Looking at both well-known classics and popular favourites, the work of famous designers and anonymous innovators it's a great introduction to the flamboyant and sometimes kitsch style of the decade when we learnt to love the modern for the first time.
